Sergeant Elijah Wright, from Janesville is in the middle.  Sergeant Ben Rothman, of Independence is on the right.  The picture was taken April 18th in Laghman Province.

Another picture showed Sergeant Rothman overseeing an Afghan medic on April 23rd.  The soldier being cared for had stepped on a land mine five days before the picture was taken and would not have lived without this care.
